Bug/Defect Trackers

Although SpiraPlan comes with a world-class built-in, fully-integrated bug-tracking system, we recognize that you may already have an existing solution in place. SpiraPlan will integrate with all the major bug-tracking systems on the market using its data-synchronization infrastructure that is completely seamless to the end-user.

Atlassian Jira


Jira is a popular issue tracking product, developed by Atlassian, commonly used for bug tracking, issue tracking, and project management. Jira lets you track bugs and defects, link issues to related source code, plan agile development and monitor team activity.

The SpiraPlan data-synchronization plugin for Jira uses the built-in data synchronization capability of SpiraPlan to allow incidents logged in SpiraPlan to be added as new defects in Jira and vice-versa. In addition, any changes made to a previously-synchronized defect in Jira will be seamlessly updated in SpiraPlan.

The SpiraPlan plugin for Jira is compatible with both Jira Cloud and Jira Server regardless of how you have SpiraPlan hosted.

Microsoft Azure DevOps


Microsoft Azure DevOps is a Microsoft product offering source control, data collection, reporting, and project tracking, and is intended for collaborative software development projects. It is available either as a cloud service (Azure DevOps Services) or an on-premise server product (Azure DevOps Server). It replaces the tools formerly known Visual Studio Online and Team Foundation Server respectively.

The SpiraPlan data-synchronization plugin for Azure DevOps uses the built-in data synchronization capability of SpiraPlan to allow incidents logged in SpiraPlan to be added as new work items in Azure DevOps and vice-versa. In addition, any changes made to a previously-synchronized work item in Azure DevOps will be seamlessly updated in SpiraPlan. The plugin also allows requirements and user story work items to synchronize into SpiraPlan as requirements.

The SpiraPlan plugin for Azure DevOps is compatible with both Azure DevOps Services (cloud) and Azure DevOps Server (on-premise) regardless of how you have SpiraPlan hosted.

GitHub


GitHub is an extremely popular website for open-source and inner-source projects alike, with a lightweight bug tracker built right into each code repository. The SpiraPlan plug-in synchronizes issues in GitHub with a project right inside SpiraPlan.

You can easily see new issues created in GitHub right inside your SpiraPlan. Comments, releases (milestones), and statuses will automatically sync, so you don’t have to worry about managing two separate systems.

GitLab


The SpiraPlan GitLab plug-in synchronizes issues in GitLab with a requirements or testing project right inside SpiraPlan. The built-in integration service enables two-way syncing of new incidents, new comments, statuses, and releases (milestones).

The integration provides the following features: - When you run tests in SpiraPlan and log issues, they will get synchronized into GitLab. - You can easily see new issues created in GitLab right inside your SpiraPlan instance. - Comments, releases (milestones), and statuses will automatically sync, so you don’t have to worry about managing two separate systems.

Configuration Notes

  • The plugin works with both the cloud and on-premise versions of GitLab and SpiraPlan
  • The setup and configuration is done solely on the SpiraPlan side, nothing needs to be done explicitly in GitLab

Bugzilla


You can use SpiraPlan in conjunction with the open-source Bugzilla bug tracking system. The built-in integration service allows the quality assurance team to manage their requirements and test cases in SpiraPlan, execute test runs in SpiraPlan, and then have the new incidents generated during the run be automatically loaded into Bugzilla. Once the incidents are loaded into Bugzilla as bugs, the development team can then manage the lifecycle of these bugs in Bugzilla, and have the status changes in Bugzilla be reflected back in SpiraPlan.

Mantis


You can use SpiraPlan in conjunction with the open-source Mantis bug tracking system. The built-in integration service allows the quality assurance team to manage their requirements and test cases in SpiraPlan, execute test runs in SpiraPlan, and then have the new incidents generated during the run be automatically loaded into Mantis. Once the incidents are loaded into Mantis as bugs, the development team can then manage the lifecycle of these bugs in Mantis, and have the status changes in Mantis be reflected back in SpiraPlan.

IBM Rational ClearQuest


Rational ClearQuest is an enterprise level workflow automation tool from the Rational Software division of IBM. Commonly, ClearQuest is configured as a bug tracking system, but it can be configured to act as a CRM tool or to track a complex manufacturing process. It can also implement these functions together. IBM provides a number of predefined "schemas" for common tasks such as software Defect Tracking which can themselves be further customized if required.

The SpiraPlan data-synchronization plugin for ClearQuest uses the built-in data synchronization capability of SpiraPlan to allow incidents logged in SpiraPlan to be added as new defects in ClearQuest and vice-versa. In addition, any changes made to a previously-synchronized defect in ClearQuest will be seamlessly updated in SpiraPlan.
